    So Karen Gillan was at London comic con this weekend with her hair dyed red because as she says she is filming something she can't talk about and reunited with an actor everyone loves.

    Nothing that I've said in this instance is wrong.

    Um, Why would she need to dye her hair red?

    Because it was brown for another role. Missing the main part of the news here.

    Agreed. Both of those films are so much fun.

    I don't know if this has been addressed, but NPH is only appearing in the third special correct?
    Is he going to be a over arching behind the scenes manipulator of the other two specials - leading to a final confrontation with the Doctor in the third?

    Russell has said each one is a separate story but that doesn't preclude it being revealed the he crashed the Meep's ship in front of Donna or sends the pair wherever they end up in "Wild Blue Yonder".

    And it hasn't escaped my notice that his waistcoat has the same pattern as the Doctor's new trousers, that appeared out of thin air with the rest of his clothes.

    Those posters are really cool. Actually, looking at the posters more, it looks like Tennant is staring into my soul and trying to grab me, which is a bit creepy :lol:

    Honestly, as much as I'm glad they're making these specials, it will be hard for me to go from Tennant to a brand new Doctor, since his return is the first time I've been excited for Doctor Who since 2018. Ncuti might have been better served coming after (arguably, I guess) NuWho's biggest lull then coming right after the multi episode return of a fan favorite Doctor. Hopefully RTD starts his era off with a bang.

    1) Tennant isn't starring in Series 14 because the 60th Anniversary Specials are their own independent and separate thing

    2) Everything that I said about Disney's connection to/involvement with Doctor Who as an IP is 100% accurate

    Uhhh Ncuti is starring in Series 1, according to some Youtube influencer from a quote somewhere somewhen.

    Yeah, we know that. Russell confirmed it's back to Series 1 again in DWM.

    His quote was "we're calling it Season 1", which sounds (to me, anyway) like an internal production thing, not a literal re-numbering of everything.

    People will believe what they choose to believe, though.

    You sound like a broken record.

    If you think I'm wrong, prove it.

    So looks like the Children In Need scene is picking up directly where the DWM comic "Liberation of the Daleks" ended. I thought the BBC weren't allowed to do things like that but maybe it doesn't count as it's not an full episode?

    And I'm all for colour blind casting but surely if anybody should be just be played by white people it's the Kaleds.

    Kind of, but also not: https://tardis.fandom.com/wiki/Tardis:Canon_policy

    I guess if it doesn't actually require the viewer to read the comic, it's okay.
